From Umpqua Bank:
Umpqua Bank kicked off its "Help Us Give" campaign today, inviting its Facebook community to help decide which 20 nonprofit groups and schools should receive $2,500 grants from the company's $50,000 Good Deed Fund generated in October.
"Help Us Give" culminates Umpqua's Good Deed campaign, which took place in October, during which the company encouraged customers and communities to join the company in giving back through simple good deeds. For every pledge, Umpqua added $10 to its Good Deed Fund, and the community responded, pledging 5,058 good deeds in stores and on Facebook to create a $50,580 fund.
Between now and Monday, Dec. 2, community members can nominate a nonprofit organization or school deserving of a Good Deed Fund grant through the company's Facebook page at http://facebook.com/umpquabank. The winners will be announced during the second week of December.
Grants will be given to qualified, community-nominated organizations and schools in areas where Umpqua Bank associates have a presence. For grant guidelines and more information on eligible recipients, visit: http://bit.ly/I1ZhJV.
